Saboti MP Caleb Amisi has fallen out with his staff.
The MP has gone ahead and sacked some of them.
On Saturday, the MP said he has fired some of his workers who misappropriated bursary funds.
Amisi did not however give the names of those he has sacked nor the amount of money lost.
“There were inconveniences in bursaries and that is why among other reasons, I have decided to relieve them off their duties,” he said.
The MP spoke during the burial of Alupina Munialo, mother to Trans Nzoia County Chief Officer for governance Pius Munialo.
The burial was in Kaburetwa , Saboti Constituency.
In most cases, the bursary vetting process is done by the CDF officials and staff.
However, some residents close to the Staff said the MP is firing staff because of political reasons.
“He is simply biased and doesn’t want to work with some people. He was been looking for a way of dismissing them and now claims they misappropriated the funds yet they haven’t, “the resident who sought anonymity said.
Some of the residents blamed the MP for the skewed allocation of bursaries whereas others blamed his staff.
The MP has reportedly accused his staff of writing two shs 600, 000 cheque to Trans Nzoia Secondary school and later withdrawing one.
During the burial ceremony, the MP said he is pushing for the establishment of the office of the Deputy County Commissioner at Saboti Market.
He said the office will be officially be opened by Internal Security CS Fred Matiang’i.
“The recruitment of our youth who will be joining the National Police service and other forces will be done here,” he said.
Others who attended the function were health CEC Clare Namenge, her agriculture counterpart Mary Nzomo and all Chief Officers and County staff.
Namenge told residents to go for early screening of diseases associated with poor lifestyle.
She said disease like cancer, once detected early, can be treated.
